Attention, everybody: My birthday has officially been moved to Thursday. That’s because on Wednesday, we’ll be live updating our National Signing Day coverage allllllll day starting at 7:30 a.m. Woohoo! 

Our latest project is now up on the web, and all I want for my birthday are page views. It’s a four-part project that Dieter and I have been working on for the past month. 

Part One: The Recruiting Radar. Dieter manages the page with feeds from other high school reporters on the whims on 18-year-old kids deciding where to play college ball. This went live about two weeks ago to get hype going for NSD, and so far, it’s been really successful. 

Part Two: The Journey to the Signature. This eight-part series takes you behind the scenes of the recruiting process to expose what the athletes really go through to put on the college jersey. 

Part Three: The Livestream. We’ve partnered with South Florida Sports Network to provide livestream video all day on Wednesday. 

Part Four: The Grand Finale… The Megaboard. I built this page to house everything we’ll be doing on National Signing Day. The table and map are built from Google Docs so reporters and editors can easily update them. This is where we will live update as the students turn in their National Letter of Intent, along with providing video and other fun stuff. It went live today so people can get prepared and starting learning more about the players. 

Enjoy!
